Hi if I change the category slug of one of my categories, does WordPress automatically handle redirects from the old category slug to the new one?

No, WordPress only handles changes of individual post slugs, by saving old slugs in post meta.

You could try a plugin, like Redirection, to handle old category slug 301 redirects.
